On September 15, 2015, US EPA’s Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance published a proposed list of national enforcement initiatives (NEIs) for fiscal years 2017–19. This latest NEI list includes NEIs from the last round (FY2014–16) as well as three new potential NEIs that US EPA is considering.
Previous NEIs include: (1) air pollution from the largest sources; (2) toxic air pollution; (3) pollution from energy extraction and production activities; (4) pollution from mineral processing operations; (5) raw sewage and contaminated stormwater; and (6) water pollution from animal waste.
Noting that it is “very mindful that our resources have been declining over the past five years,” US EPA proposes three new potential NEIs are as follows:
Comments are due October 14, 2015. US EPA is inviting the public to comment on: (i) whether each FY2014–16 NEI should continue into the FY2017–19 cycle (and any adjustments to areas of focus); (ii) the three new potential NEIs; and (iii) Next Generation Compliance opportunities for the previous and potential new NEIs. The proposal is available here.
